1984 Forman Cabernet
12/17/08-The Wednesday Knitters enjoyed another brown bag older cabernet. The 84 Forman had held up marvelously over time and presented a very fruity, youthful wine. The participants guessed it as a California wine due to its intense fruit, with flavors of black cassis and leather/coffee. Tim Curtis went back two more times and as before, Ann Vik chose it for her dinner wine. The wine had deposited significant sediment, more than I can ever remember for an older wine. This properly cellared wine was a good contrast with the previously tasted 84 Clos du Bois.
